C21 usually employs two graduate students (either doctoral or Master's candidates) each year at 50 percent appointments. Employment includes salary plus tuition remission. A C21 project assistantship offers the opportunity to meet visiting scholars and attend C21 events, and to work with technologies that will strengthen our web presence.
The Call for a C21 Project Assistant is CLOSED. For more information about the assistanship, please consult last year's Call for C21 Project Assistants. Application deadline is typically around the end of March.
The Center is co-sponsor of the annual Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference, a forum that gives graduate students valuable experience in presenting their work publicly and in mastering the give and take of academic question and answer sessions. Further information about the conference can be found on its website.
The Center coordinates a Graduate Student Reading Group that provides graduate students with a venue to explore and discuss new scholarship, different interpretative frameworks, and various underpinnings of analysis. Groups are usually formed around certain areas of study, such as Queer Studies, Feminist Theory, Science and Society. Graduate students interested in forming a Center-sponsored reading group should contact deputy director Emily Clark.
